Food and service need to be improve. Very disappointed. We are served with burned bbq chicken and have to wait for so long to be served. And feel like we are not welcome when we enter in. And the price is quite expensive......

We stayed at this place for one night after paying for five. It was the worst hotel experience. We had been to Vietnam the previous two weeks and thought we would unwind and treat ourselves in a luxury stay, which the hotel's photos suggest. The hotel is basically a suburban house set amongst industrial premises situated on a busy dual...

We stayed in Cyril's place for three nights. There is so much thought put into the decor and design of this place which makes it a really unique and out of the ordinary place to stay. Our room was quirky and comfortable and the pool/hammocks/waterfall all very enticing. The food was very good and the bar area was really cool....

“Our main tip would be to make sure you have clear instructions of where to go - print a map as it's in a residential area so taxi drivers appear to need a little guidance beyond the address”

“The single rooms, particularly those perching at 2nd level could be better. More privacy and probably better kept but no attached bathrooms though.”
